Pontiac has a long history dating back to the early 1800’s when the first settlers arrived in what would later become the city of Pontiac. Established as a village in 1837, Pontiac was quickly recognized for its potential in terms of location for businesses and professionals alike. A center for industry as early as 1844, Pontiac quickly grew to become one of the largest and most influential cities in the region. Though Pontiac suffered like many other Michigan cities in the late 1900’s, Pontiac has been working hard to grow once again, offering a diverse business base and new opportunities including recreational opportunities in the arts, history and even the outdoors.
Home to close to 60,000 people, Pontiac is a great area to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. For many residents and visitors in the Pontiac area, getting out and enjoying the natural areas Pontiac still has to offer is important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. One of the most popular of these types of recreational areas, for many, is the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area, in neighboring Waterford, a large outdoor recreational paradise, close to 3,800 acres. This area is a great for hiking, biking, camping or just relaxing any time of the year.
For many who are suffering from the symptoms of rheumatic or inflammatory conditions, getting out and enjoying hiking or biking can be difficult but is necessary. Your rheumatologist can help you manage your symptoms and live a more active life.
